Kris Senanu Joins Safaricom as Head of Enterprise Business

Former Telkom Kenya Managing Director, Enterprise Business Kris Senanu and ICT CS Joe Mucheru follow the proceedings during the Connected Summit Partners' Breakfast which was held at the Intercontinental Hotel on Thursday 20th September

In April 2021, we learned that Kris Senanu, alongside Steve Okeyo, serving as Head of Enterprise Business and Managing Director for Consumer Service Delivery units, respectively, left Telkom Kenya.

Their exit was reported by the operator as follows:

In August last year, Telkom opened a fresh chapter with the launch of a new and bold strategic direction, with the objective of sharpening its efficiencies, with respect to service provision and overall customer experience. We are also excited about the areas we have identified for further investment and growth this year, namely our fibre infrastructure, vast GSM Networks and digital financial services platform. The end game of our strategy is to be the technology partner of choice to our Consumer, SME, Corporate, and Public Sector clients. The journey towards this new direction is very much on course and is now gathering momentum.

We have been wondering where the two executives are, and today, a section of the question has been answered.

According to a message we spotted on social media, Kris Senanu is joining Safaricom.

His new role is Chief Enterprise Business Officer. This goes in line with the carrier’s naming scheme for its top leadership.

We are yet to see an official communication from Safaricom, but we are certain the appointment has been completed.
